4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Half Acre, from my March 2013 notes. I see I didn’t have a lot to say about this, even though I was clearly impressed based on the numbers I wrote down. Basically, it was a typical small brewer’s big IPA. The nose brought me big pine and citrus, and then on the tongue, i feel more of that big hoppy pine note. The lacy foam gets into my mouth too, and helps deliver more pinpricks of hoppy goodness. If you had it, you know what I mean. I have another beer on my page of notes below this one, which rated slightly lower, so it’s not just the cumulative effect of my many tasters.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the brewpub. Hazy amber-orange pour with a medium bone white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of piney hops, citrus and biscuit malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a resiny hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A floral aroma that is quite nice. This IPA is much fruitier and lighter in body than the Vallejo. Still has good bitterness in the back end.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a relatively clear orange amber with a medium sized beige head. Gentle earthy citrus on the nose, thick malty background. Medium bodied, soft malt and a nice soft grapefruit note. Gentle grapefruit and citrus into the finish, a hint of alcohol peeks out at the end.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewery, 10/28/15. Slightly resiny on the nose. Some malt notes come through s will. Orange with a bubbly beige head and fairly heavy lace. Nice hop presence overall. Good beer, enjoyed the Gone Away more personally, but this is tasty too.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a tasty little morsel by the Half Acre Crew. Plus a deep copper hue with a thin white head and deep caramel malt aroma. The taste matches the aroma with side order of a hop assault to your jowls and solar plexus.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at half. Huge citrus nose with a light pepper bite. Light caramel. Taste is more malt forward than nose would lend you to believe. Overall the hood seem a bit muted. Malt forward. Not my bag.

On tap at half acre taproom, pours a hazy Amber/orang with a large off-white head. Big citrus hop aroma, grapefruit and orange, light pine and malt. Citrus hops dominate with a mild resinous pine lightly floral with a steady malt base. Well done and drinkable!
